Updated Insurance Information

In June of 2019, the UNC Board of Trustees passed new university policies regarding international student insurance. All policies must meet the minimum requirements specified for international students to be waived out of the university insurance. If students do not demonstrate comparable coverage, they will not be able to waive the insurance. This new policy helps the university to remain compliant with federal regulations. 

Complete the UNC International Student Insurance Waiver Form and submit it to International.Advising@unco.edu with a copy of your policy to be waived from UNC insurance. 

Spring Break Travel 2020

UNC and the Center for International Education are carefully monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The University is in contact with local health officials and is following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health agencies.  In an abundance of caution, the ISSS team is suggesting that international students carefully consider the potential impact of international travel over spring break.  If you do choose to travel, please insure that you have an up-to-date travel signature.
